March and April 2017

Plugging Along…

Since I have promised no 2D wall work until the second half of the year and make myself go back to Woodworking, my only option is to go through my 2D TO DO Over pile and work those pieces…

Note to Self: Since confirming National Bohemian Beer which is part of Pabst is now “Russian Firm” owned we no longer drink either one. We started February with Budweiser and Bud Light and recently ending the month of March with Miller High Life!!! :-)

February 2017

Some New Projects

It’s a start… :-)


As a side note, I have been experiencing a very large and quick battery drain on my Android Phone which is at OS 4.4.2 (?) I did some looking around and noticed this is a relatively common problem. Many suggested causes and solution and one or 2 threads mentioned possibly the SD card. I had been running a couple of Apps through the SD card, one in particular, a photo App started running very very sluggishly. I removed any Apps using the my SD card and lo and behold problem fixed. I still use the SD card for storage but not for any Apps! Hope this helps…

EDIT: March 29,2017

The culprit causing the MSNSD issue and battery loss if Facebook! For my android, it seems to rear it’s ugly head when trying to check in and or possibly watching a video through the Facebook APP. Even removing Facebook is not a a sure bet, but I’ve found if you go into your “Storage’ under settings clear the cache and then look for a folder that is labeled “misc”, in this folder I found a couple of Facebook files which I deleted and like magic I can still use the FB App and MDNSD is gone!!!

Happy New Year 2017

2017 and beyond!

I think this is the year I return to more woodworking. It’s been roughly 10 years since I really produced cabinets, tables, clocks, shelving, etc. etc. etc., it’s time again…

In 2016, I sold every last woodworking item I had squirreled away. A few projects from 12 years ago came back to be fine tuned and spruced up for their collectors. I also took on a few successful commissions last year!

Looking Back on some 2016 Projects

First Quarter 2016 Year of the Monkey

Happy Mother's Day 2016

Not really much to report to this date. Lot’s of odd things happening so far in 2016, details may follow. Going on 11 years at 826 W 36th St, hard to believe. Seems like every single significant person in my life was born in the Year of the Monkey!

Opening Reception Dougherty’s Baltimore

Join me at Dougherty’s

Art Clocks by Rick Santiago

I rarely do shows or exhibits outside of the Art Under Ground Studio or the Pearl Gallery anymore, but Dougherty’s is a great place located in the Mt Vernon area, close to the Meyerhoff.  Also, it was my first dinner out when I moved to Charm City (the 1st time around), the Circle is now complete…

Still working with Hollow Core Doors, Canvas and Acrylics using subtractive and additive sculptural techniques.  I’ll have at least one textured piece and hopefully a couple of the Crimped Canvas pieces.

  • Dougherty’s
  • Thursday June 5, 2014
  • 7:00 – 9:00
  • Refreshments Served: Wine and Cheese +
  • Live Irish Music during Reception

Summer Whites

Series a White Fabric Pieces on Wood Panel
Going back to Fabric Textured Pieces for a spell, probably will make a few more of these in varying sizes.  These are 19 x 15, canvas wrapped wood, mixed media and acrylics.  Originally, these were going to be clocks, but they turned out too nice/pretty to start drilling holes into them, maybe later.
